from Hardin Hyundia Anahe
Year / Model Reviewed:
2009 Hyundia Sonta GSL 4-cyl, 5A
The price, although I have learned or been reminded you get what you pay for. Good interior room, like dash instrument placement.
Poor ride quality, very rough ride. More engine noise than you would expect for a new car. Small annoyances like rattles from seat belt on the passenger side. The more seriour weakness is the rough road feel and poor ride quality. I think this is more a design flaw. Many reviews mention this problem. Take it for more than around the block test drive. You may make another choice froma more established and better quality auto maker. But it will cost you more.
Is a word disappointing. Don't believe the hype about strides in quality. I can only imagine what the quality was like before it this is the best they can offer. THis is the only car in 40 years that I purchased new that I had no great "new car" feeling. THe poor ride quality overshadows everything good about the car. It's an appliance auto--gets you from A to B. I ownered Toyota for 30 years and never felt this way. Live and learn. There is a reason they are clearance sale priced, and come with a extended warranty.
